We stayed in the house and it felt like home, it was so cosy and comfortable especially at night with the log fire. It was great feeding the chickens every morning and the dogs too Lucky and Lilly. There was homemade cake and fresh eggs on our arrival.The surrounding area is beautiful, the views from the Stiperstones and the Long Mynd are fantastic. Lots of nice pubs and cafes in the area so don't be surprised if you put a few pounds on!!! We had snow one day and everywhere looked magical.Will be certainly recommending the Walkmill to family and friends.By the way if you sit quietly you will see a Dipper in the river, it was one of my partners highlights of the holiday being a keen birdwatcher.
